At The White Magnolia, we believe that every bride deserves a special and personal experience. We ask that you visit us by appointment so that we can give you our undivided attention when helping you find the wedding dress of your dreams. Please make your appointment with us at least 24 hours in advance. We do require a credit card to hold weekend & evening Appointments, as well as special events.
Cleaning and Preserving
After the wedding, The White Magnolia is here to take care of all your dress cleaning and preserving needs. The White Magnolia partners with both The Wedding Gown Preservation Company & Orange Restoration labs to provide expert cleaning and preserving services. This service ranges from $225-$375 dollars. Please set up a time to drop your dress off at the boutique and we will take it from there! Available at all locations. Please contact us at any location for further details.
Although The White Magnolia does not offer alterations services, we are happy to refer you to an expert seamstress in your area. Some of our locations offer for certain seamstresses to provide their alteration services to you within our boutique for your convenience. But please note, these seamstresses are performing alterations as part of their own business and not as a part of The White Magnolia Bridal Collection. The White Magnolia is not liable for dress alterations.
Frequently Asked Questions
When do I arrive?
Please arrive on time for your appointment. In most cases, we have appointments immediately prior to and immediately following your appointment so should you arrive early or late, we may not be able to assist you.
Whom should I bring?
Family and friends whom you value their opinion and understand your personal style. We ask that you do not bring children ... this is your time to shine!
How far in advance do I need to order my dress?
You need to order 6-9 months prior to your wedding to avoid any stress. The earlier the better!
Do you carry plus size gowns?
Yes! We offer a selection of plus size gowns at each of our locations! If you have questions as to specific plus-size collections, please contact your white magnolia location and one of our consultants will be happy to help.
How do I pay for my dress?
We accept all forms of payment (cash, check, credit card). We prefer that you pay for your gown in full. If you prefer to break up the cost a 50% deposit is required to order your wedding gown and the remainder is due 6 weeks after you place your order. Dresses sold "off the rack" must be paid in full.
Can I take pictures?
We ask that you wait to take pictures until you have decided upon "the dress." We want to make sure we use your appointment time efficiently to find you the perfect dress.
How long is my appointment?
At The White Magnolia, we reserve an hour and a half of time for you to have your own individual appointment. While here, you & your group will work one on one with a bridal stylist in a private setting so we can focus all our attention on helping you.
What about undergarments?
Your consultant will be popping in & out of the dressing room to help you into each gown... so wear something you are comfortable in. Light-colored undergarments, a strapless bra, and spanxs (if desired) are suggested.
Can I bring food and drink?
We ask that you do not bring food/drink into the boutique unless previously discussed with our staff. Our goal is to protect our gowns in the store. Please inquire if you would like to have champagne provided for your appointment. *Not available at all locations
What if I live out of state?
Not a problem! We are happy to ship your dress to you wherever you may call home.
